Brady will NEVER EVER EVER EVER EVER win another super bowl EVER again!
Yep, I said it. and it felt good. I'm so sure of it that I will print out this entire thread and eat it if he does...yep all 45+ pages. The Patriots era is over, the once dynasty will get crushed and 5hitted out in the playoffs if they make it. I can't wait to witness it.
BTW - the last game was a gift. Obvious holding on the last play of the game!
remember you heard it here first.
with that being said, bring on the hate...

Tom Brady and his coach are cheaters whose championships and records will forever be tainted. Brady probably married his wife because she is a cheater too; i.e. team spying and plastic surgery. I wouldn't be surprised if he is roiding also. These guys get all kinds of injections, of who knows what.... maybe it's to shield their valuable bodies against the GMO's and chemtrails. Peyton and the neck injury, that was probably helped along by roids also.
Very exciting to see what Andy Reid is capable of without the distraction of cheesesteaks. Seahawks look dangerous and could make a deep run. Falcons lost to the Jersey Juggalo Circus, and Houston is imploding also...
SO WHO WILL IT BE? Chiefs and Saints? Broncos - Niners?
All I want to see this year is SNOW at the superbowl. And two teams who can play in it. Even if one is the New England Cheatriots. Maybe the Giants will win out to the Bowl and beat them with homefield advantage?
If it's snowing during the 2014 Niners vs. Cheatriots bowl, and it's also chest high and clean, what do you do?
For the record, bro-brahs can be just as bad as hipsters. Same job, different uniform. By the looks of it Sunday, Brady is the latter.
Doug, sorry to hear about your dog. I think a lot of the dudes on here sympathize with that situation... good luck man.

HA. The spygate thing has been the most outrageously blown out of proportion "scandal" in recent sports history. Never mind the fact that multiple NFL coaches (Herm Edwards, Marty Schottenheimer) have admitted to doing the same thing (or being aware of members of their staffs and/or opponents staffs doing it) for years, which is why so many teams have two coaches call plays (one flashing dummy signals), but filming signals isn't even explicitly against any NFL rule. Educate yourself:
http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1...omoting-parity (kind of long article making too much of a point on the NFL punishing success, but pretty well covers the rule interpretations utilized in the spygate punishments).
Coaches can stare at the other teams coaches anyway. You don't think a pencil and pen are utilized by NFL staffers? Pretty easy to note down signals in a variety of ways.
And it kills me how in the meantime people are already singing the Sean Payton redemption song ....let's remember that he was aware of a pay-for-play program which rewarded injuring opponents, didn't stop the program, was then told by the league and his owner to stop it, still didn't stop it, and finally got nailed for it. But he's really overcome the adversity and is a shining model of an NFL coach now?
Granted, I'm a Patriots fan, so you will likely assume this is just homer-ism (and I'm sure somewhere at the root of it, it is), but when I really and truly try to think objectively about football, or talk to people who are not pats fans but legitimately understand the game, the conclusion is the same....is Belichick stupid for continuing to film after warnings that the way he was doing it was frowned upon by the league? Yes. Did the patriots win all those games and super bowls because of their oh-so-cleverly aimed cameras? Get out of here. Just a weak excuse to knock down a team that everyone hates now....remember when they were massive underdogs, beat the Rams and were the feel-good story of the sporting world? Easy to hate success, I guess

I suppose the monsoon on the final drive in Cincy was also a gift. You know, the torrential downpour that went the whole duration of that drive and then immediately ceased at the end of the drive. That one.

Just curious where you England fellows have your team ranked in the power rankings.

Honestly brah, it took an act of God and near natural disaster from us being undefeated now. We are knocking off previously undefeated teams when we've had, in 6 games, more starters go down with injuries than starters who've remained healthy. We lost 4 in that game alone. Several are done for the whole year. Our offensive prowess over the years has been heavily dependent on the double-tight offense. Well, we came into the year without either of our star/standout TE's. We've lost our top veteran leader DL for good and our top CB is day to day. Our standout offensive backfield hasn't been intact since week 1 and for some games all of them were out. We aren't even talking about free agency departures from last year, which were huge.
This team faces adversity each week that is multiples beyond what any other team faces in total and the setbacks are now expected to be numerous each week. Yet again, this team is 5-1 and just beat a 5-0 team. How would you describe the "power" of a franchise that has shown for years a team concept and resilience that is likely unrivaled by any other team in major sports history? ESPN can come up with any list of rankings they want. This team may very well be playing in NYC this winter and there's nothing in their environment that seems to be able to change that.
Deal with it. Whoever your team is, they'd crumble in the face if one-third of the adversity the Pats have faced this year alone.

So you have them as the best team in the NFL I take it?

Do you guys know what it's like for your team to sustain major, repeated setbacks and injuries and NOT be decimated as a result? Well, it's an empowering experience following a movement like that. For example, as much as I love my Falcons, I'm not betting the farm on them without Jackson and Jones. A ton of talent remains, but their success will largely be affected. Smitty is a very good coach as well and I'm glad they have him.
The difference between the Patriots and other teams in the league in recent years, and the reason I never have one bit of anxiety with them, is that when they lose you know why they've lost. It's clear what could've been done better and will be done better next time. When teams like the 5-0 Saints who've outplayed the Pats for the first 58:57 of the game end up losing, they're shocked, despondent, and really lack clear understanding of how that just happened. Ask the 2001 Rams, since it all started back then against them. Peyton won't be able to explain it any easier.
If they aren't the best team in the NFL right now, then who's gonna beat them next? Better yet, who's gonna beat them when Brady dials it in fit complete games again rather than just some or most drives? Who's gonna beat them when other other half of the lineup returns healthy and ready to play? Next to nobody is beating them today, brah. So even if those guys don't come back and we lose more to injuries, how's an opponent gonna match up with the mystical life force of the best team concept and locker room ever in pro sports?
We don't win it every year. But every year, we very well can win it. That's why it's so great to follow this team.

FYI cackedinri, I love the Raiders. They're in my top 5 favorite teams and always have been. I laugh when people say they hate them. Even in the rough years, they still got the aura. If they had a legit signal-caller the last few decades things may have been different.
BTW...Al is from Brockton, MA. A hardass town. He made them Boxers proud.
